Shoreline Beach Café
They're not kidding about the "beach" part: Several tables here actually sit in the sand. Shoreline prides itself on serving fresh, healthful ingredients, mostly locally grown or harvested. Complexly flavored gems such as ceviche (the fresh catch of the day marinated in lime juice and salsa fresca) and Shoreline Seafood Soup (sea bass, halibut, or snapper with calamari, mussels, leeks, fennel, and onions) are standouts; 805-568-0064 or shorelinebeachcafe.com.
